I’m a Pick Up Artist and Personal Assistant

May I help you?

Kerry On Your Personal Assistant

I am a pick up artist:

I Pick Up the Pieces: the dry cleaning, the packages at UPS, the plans at City Hall, and the groceries from Whole Foods, Safeway, Bryan’s and Trader Joe’s.

I run errands and I run interference for you with suppliers, contractors, workers and helpers.
I’m a professional Personal Assistant with a proven track record and background in logistics and operations.

Recently:

  • I Moved a couple from their home of 45 years to a Senior Residence in Santa Rosa.
  • I researched the best water heater company in Marin and arranged for the very smooth  installation
  • Arranged for 62 windows cleaned to perfection
    * Created a very thorough ‘Earthquake Preparedness Kit’ for a family of four
    and facilitated the design and construction of 3 very efficient closets….
  • I helped a film-maker set up a home office;  picked up a Visa at the Russian Consulate, bought, wrapped, insured and…

Got Computer? Got Questions?

There are gazillions of Apple Product Fans…

And just as many questions, qualms, quandaries when it comes to  Questions/Quick Fixes, crashes, and the dreaded

“I forgot My Password Syndrome.”

In Marin County, Chris Harnish is The Apple Guru for anyone over 50…his newsletter is a treasure trove of information, tips, tricks and updates on Apple Products. He makes house calls – is so smart and pleasant and calm.

Online “Ask Ben” (aka) Here’s the Thing

is a super resource for myriad “Apple and other” conundrums.

 

Happy New Year

Allow me to be Your Personal Shopper – Kerry On


unnamed-3 copy 2

Leave the shopping to me…

You are busy – very busy. And while you would love to pick up items at Rainbow Grocery, Target, Bryan’s and Cal Mart – and drop off those bags to Goodwill or Salvation Army – “free time” to do so  is not always available.

Sarah M. flys to ORD once a week and her meetings last 2-4 days. She follows a very healthy and very strict diet. She knows exactly what she wants and prepares a weekly list for me. Once or twice a month, I do Sarah’s grocery shopping; I clean out, organize,  -then re-stock her refrigerator with new purchases. She returns home to find  a wide variety of high quality, fresh produce and beverages.

Give The Gift of Time – with Kerry On – Your Personal Assistant

The Perfect Gift –  Give the Gift of Time


Kerry On: A Gift Certificatecouponkerryyonjpg

Rusty G. gave his best friend “Me” as a housewarming present.
Well, he actually he gave her three hours of my time/talent
for packing, downsizing, donating  and preparing before the movers were to arrive.

Moving Experiences?

Janet T. was moving from a huge loft South of Market to a much smaller space in Laurel Village.
In preparation to sell her condo she needed to get things wrapped, packed, labeled, and staged and ready to put on the market.
In tandem, we packed up three vast closets and the pantry which was filled with copious cooking utensils – it was like a mini Williams-Sonoma store.

Janet T promptly saw the advantage of teamwork and my organizing skills and signed up for an additional five hours.

Mission accomplished!photo-dishes

Kerry On: I’ve shopped, shipped, wrapped, recycled, delivered, deciphered, trained, hired and fired.

My clients request myriad tasks: I’ve picked up laundry, groceries, documents, meals, organized complicated Expense Reports and researched Car Insurance for a busy Executive.

I’ve delivered documents to City Hall and hired a Property Manger in Chicago.
I’ve arranged, assembled, shred, and sorted. Closets, cupboards, garages and drawers – are all in my repertoire.
I don’t do windows, I don’t do floors – but I know who to hire to do get things done.

Yelp reviews….Frankly, most clients are too reserved…however, here you go!

Michael R. Brisbane, CA Writes:

Kerry On was very professional, patient, and nonjudgmental toward what could have been a pretty humiliating experience.

I have been using my living & dining room as a office space and the clutter was just getting too much. Every time I tried to organize it myself, it was just a hassle. She easily and patiently helped me organize my living room and dining room areas in less than 3 hours.

I can now again entertain in my home. I have my entire upstairs area free from clutter. I can actually see the top of my office desk area. I really enjoy my new environment . I am now officially de-cluttered, at least for this month.

In years past, I entertained a lot and my kitchen / dining area was small and intimate…

Tidying Up – one room at a time?

seasons-846051__180

On a Whim – On a Lark – They bought The Book.

Fifteen of my clients bought the little, best-selling Magic Tiding Up Book.

You know the one.

This time next year, the book will be relegated to donations to Goodwill and libraries.

Its a great little book! Chockfull of suggestions for more joy and less clutter.

My favorite takeaway?

(No, don’t kiss your socks, don’t stockpile Q-tips or Toilet Paper.)

The best Kondo advice: Discard First – Organize Later.

This concept not Japanese or Irish or even Paleo – it’s logical and quicker and smarter.

Kerry on! You can erase, delete, purge and donate the Clutter

Clutter: The GOOD NEWS –  The BAD NEWS

Sorry, there is no such thing as a Magic Wand to remove clutter…wand

The Good News:

I can help you toss, shred, organize, alphabetize, de-clutter and organize receipts, files and mild chaos.

Allow me – to assist you in de-cluttering, organizing, purging, tossing, and shredding…

Ms T.  hired me to work with her elderly parents. They had rooms and rooms filled with items that needed to be repaired, donated, thrown away, put in the proper place, Mission Accomplished.

An affable couple, June and Ward, agreed they no longer needed those 12 old jig- saw puzzles, 20 ‘0dd’ sets of playing cards, and stacks of coloring books and boxes of broken crayons for the grandkids – who were now in college.

It’s in the Bag: We filled up bags of junk to toss or recycle …and bags of toys in good shape to be donated. Next, we sorted though dozens of old movies, cassettes, and duplicate CD’s. We agreed: there are only so many Frank Sinatra ” I Did it My Way” CD’s one can listen to.

Too Much Stuff Syndrome? Like many of us – the couple had multiple bookshelves crammed with books and old magazines – in no time the books were sorted and organized -dog-eared magazines were recycled and giving the living room a great face-lift.

(Note: Boxes of very old Time Magazines and National Geograhics were put on Craigslist for free – and disappeared.)

Tillie has booked me to visit – twice a week – for the next two months. It’s a date!

We are working magic: clutter is disappearing! Email me – we’ll talk. Kerry On
